Week 6: Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Sunday October 18, 2009
Heinz Field - Pittsburgh, PA

Steelers News and Notes:
Steelers Hold Off Lions
<More to come!>

Browns News and Notes:
Mangini sees improvement, room for more
Browns grind out 6-3 victory
Browns defense hangs tough
<More to come!>


Two Players to Watch: Steelers

James Harrison: Harrison started off the season on a low only recording 1 sack through the first 3 games. He wasn't getting to the QB and the Steelers defense looked average at best. In the last two weeks, Harrison has recorded 13 tackles, 5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles. He's finally following up his DPOY award and will be looking to keep pace against the Browns.


Stefan Logan: Logan was tremendous in the pre-season and showed spurts of greatness during the regular season but hasn't had his breakout game quite yet. Logan is currently averaging 26.4 yards on kick-off returns and 7.4 yards on punt returns. I think Logan could find his first return for a touchdown in the regular season in week 6.


Two Players to Watch: Browns

Derek Anderson: Derek Anderson replaced starting QB Brady Quinn in week 3 against Baltimore. He started off by throwing an interception on his very first pass and it hasn't gotten better since. He currently holds a 39.0 passer rating with 1 TD and 5 INT on the season. Anderson was once a Pro Bowl QB and we'll see if he can return to that form against the Steelers defense.


Shaun Rogers: Rogers is one of the Browns tough defenders that could cause a problem for the Steelers offense. He's a big guy that can stuff the Steelers run and has shown the ability to block kicks, blocking two against the Bengals. A special teams block or a short yardage stuff could be the difference in field position.



Who's Hot? Who's Cold?

Hot


Big Ben has caught fire as of late. In the last two weeks, Big Ben has thrown for 610 yards, 5 touchdowns, and only 1 interception. He's looked poised in the pocket and other than a few mental errors, has been very solid.


Cold


LaMaar Woodley has been shut down for most of the season so far. He hasn't gotten any pressure to the quarterback and isn't making big plays in the run game or covering the opposition. It's only a matter of time until Woodley snaps out of this slump.



Pittsburgh Steelers/Cleveland Browns History:

Quote:

The Browns-Steelers rivalry is one of the most storied rivalries in the NFL (5th in all time contests but 1st in parity) and the most storied in the AFC surpassing any other rivalry in the conference by at least 5 contests (117 season and post season games have been played). The rivalry has been called locally the Turnpike Rivalry, due to the two cities being connected via the Pennsylvania and Ohio Turnpikes. The Browns and Steelers first met in 1950, the Browns' first in the NFL after dominating the AAFC. At 114 meetings and counting, it is the oldest rivalry in the AFC.



1st Meeting: October 7, 1950
Number of Meetings: 114
All-Time Series: PIT: 59-55
Largest victory: CLE: 510 (9/10/1989)
Current Streak: PIT: Won 11
Post Season Series: PIT: 2-0

It's the Browns, it's at home, what else could expect. The Steelers let the Lions stick around, the "LIONS"!!!!!! At this rate the Browns could honestly beat us @ home.

I do.

This game shouldnt be close, but if certain things arent corrected, the Browns could beat us. Playing us and spoiling things for us and our division are all they have at this point. These rivalry games are always tough.

We are by far the better team, but we arent playing up to our ability. All it takes is a few mistakes on our part to keep them in it, and if they are close come the 4th quarter...well....all I have to say is "55-13".

Good write-up coleman397.


BTW guys. Let's not fall for any trash talking with the Browns boys. Things usually get pretty heated between our forums and we don't want people getting in trouble.

Naw..Browns fans are too busy bashing their own players and coaches to really talk junk on ours.

And no...Im not joking.

Best way to attack your D is through the air, and our passing game is a little... uh.... weak right now. Anderson actually played pretty well against Cincy, and if the good DA shows up, the Browns have a shot.

Your offense is looking great right now, and I don't like the matchup problems you guys present. Mangini and Rob Ryan have the Browns playing more disciplined on defense, but we lack playmakers. As always, turnovers will be key.

KEYS TO VICTORY

Offense

1. Establish the run game on the first few drives to set up the play action. We should have some tremendous opportunities in both facets of the "O". But the PA should give us gaping voids in the Browns "D"

2. Keep the peddal to the metal-don't let up...EVER b/c we can't afford to get conservative until we stop someone defensively in the fourth...consistently

3. Let Big#7 air it out on any down, what can I say...he's plaing lights out!


Defense

1. It's paramount that we get pressure on Anderson. From what I can remember he gets rid of the ball fairly quick and doesn't take many sacks but he can be forced into making bad decisions.

2. Blitz, Blitz, Blitz...like the last four plays of the Lions game Laughing

3. Come get you some TO's, an aspect that outside of sacks has been completely lacking the first 4 weeks(didn't see the Lions game Crying or Very sad )

Special Teams

1. As usual, change the field on both sides, return and coverage

Not trying to stir the pot, but both Polamalu and Parker are practicing this week. If Troy is healthy he plays, I understand that, but...who starts at tailback if Parker is a go; Mendy or Parker. I know who I would like how about you?


For those curious it's Parker Very Happy
